Details

Feel the balance of power and finesse aboard Trek's Madone 5.9. The power part comes from Trek's OCLV carbon frame, which boasts ingenious technology that will have you setting personal bests. The 90mm-wide bottom bracket gives you a stiff, efficient pedaling platform, the integrated headset and BB cups save weight and the seatmast trims even more grams, and adds compliance for long-ride comfort. The finesse part starts up front with the Race X Lite Carbon fork boasting a tapered steerer for precise steering and awesome efficiency with minimal weight. And your Madone proudly showcases Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting for effortless, blink-of-a-eye shifting. And, Race X Lite components and tubeless Ultegra wheels make the 5.9 perfect for the serious racer and casual rider alike.

Bontrager Race X Lite Carbon fork

Bontrager's Race X Lite Carbon Fork is light, stiff and rides beautifully, thanks to its ingenious steerer, which uses the standard 1 1/8-inch diameter at the top combined with a 1 1/2-inch diameter at the bottom where the fork meets the crown. This reduces the stresses placed on the fork, significantly increases strength and saves weight by reducing the amount of carbon required and eliminating the need for additional reinforcement. Trek's oversize E2 head tube adds strength and stiffness. The result is an unbelievably stiff and super-light front end.



Trek's BB90.
Trek's Madone features a unique bottom bracket (image, right) that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the 90mm bottom bracket is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame (image) saving weight (due to fewer parts, below), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.

Instead of a conventional seatpost, Trek's Madone boasts a seatmast (image). Compared to traditional seatposts (image, left) and also modern integrated seatmasts, this engineering masterpiece boosts strength and pedaling efficiency, saves weight, increases compliance a whopping 39% (for maximum comfort), and offers all the adjustability you'll ever need (no cutting required). It lets your Trek fit in a UPS-compatible box for shipping, too!
Madone seatmast height range
This chart shows the maximum seat height for each Madone frame size. To determine which is right for you, we recommend measuring the seat height on your current bicycle.

Trek's fit system lets you get the bike that fits you perfectly.
Whether you're looking for the most aero riding position, to sit as upright as possible, or anywhere in between, with Trek's H1, H2 and H3 fits, there's a Madone that's perfect for you.

H1 (see yellow dots on illustration) is Trek's most aggressive, most aero fit, with the lowest handlebar-position options.
H2 (orange dots) is the right fit for most riders. It sports the same handling as the H1 fit, with a slightly taller head tube that puts the handlebars higher.
H3 (red dots) boasts an even taller head tube and higher bars than H2 and a small handling adjustment for even more stability.
